Hi,

I need to know if the steps to delete cache and cookies in Firefox 3.5 is the same as for the latest version--this is for Firefox in Mac, not PC. I understand the newest version is 74 so I imagine the process must have changed but I dont exactly know...

Also, if the process has changed, what was the old process?

Thanks :)

Hi Fine People,

This longtime Firefox user has Firefox as his default browser on a Windows 10 PC and keeps it updated. Sometimes, I try to access an article in a newspaper or magazine I'm not subscribed to and cannot open it. Instead, I receive this message (and nothing else): "Private/incognito mode detected ! In order to read our site, please exit private/incognito mode or login to continue."

I've tried on many occasions and given several hours of effort to resolving this "private/incognito mode" obstruction but cannot figure out what I need to change. I changed the setting that will not allow pop ups: the browser now allows pop ups. On cookie settings, I have always used the (recommended) standard setting instead of the strict or custom settings.

I have the Microsoft browser installed for rare use. When I tried opening the newspaper link that is blocked on my Firefox browser, I don't receive the "Private/incognito mode detected . . . " notice. The article opens and displays right away.

I can't think of anything else to tell you about this issue.

If you don't mind, please reply to my private address: jiminky@windstream.net.

Thanks a million.

Sincerely, Jim

What I want to do is limit the cookies that are allowed to the sites that I visit the most, then delete the rest on browser exit.

That way, I get logged in automatically to my favorite sites, then f* the rest of those cookies.

My plan is to:

1) Manually delete all cookies, 2) Quickly visit and sign in to all my favorite websites, 3) Add permissions to allow only those cookies that were added, 4) Then set the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checkbox

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to do 3) because the Manage Data and Manage Permissions dialogs don't talk to each other.

It would also be nice to be able to specify a domain or general expression for allowed cookies, such as *.bankofamerica.com

I guess what I am asking for is better tools to add allowed cookies from existing cookie lists instead of the very blunt tools we have today.

I am using Firefox v 75.0

Thank you.

A games site that I like requires an activation code to get in, but after a certain number of uses of the activation code, the code becomes invalid and I can't get in. The site uses permanent cookies to get past the activation code requirement (a bookmark won't do it). How do I allow permanent cookies for this one particular site? I don't want to disable tracking on any other site, just this one. Thanks! Kathy

Is there anyway I can restore that info? It is mostly because I use this site called band camp to download music and I keep a lot of tracks that I want to buy in my cart. but since I deleted the cookie data now all those songs I found are gone along with all the other cookie data. Is there an easy way to do this? im running Firefox 77.01
